Wait for me!

I feel like life is going lightyears ahead of me as I blink. There’s a few things going on in my life- career, household issues, relationships and it’s all a bit too much sometimes. I always say to myself, it could be worse….a lot worse….so don’t complain at what you do have. and I do stand by that notion. but I want to get to a high standard then just okay. I’ve just had an interview for a tutoring position, and despite feeling my best efforts not to choke on a dry throat due to my nervousness, I still should have done much better. I hope I get that call. Anyways….

I believe that whatever happens, is meant to be, even if it isn’t clear at the time. I must have patience. Easy now.

Look what I found…

I’m flicking through my old notebooks, yes, I’m a hoarder, I can’t bear to let go of my journal entries. I find a notebook from two years ago in 2013. I also find some other notebook inserts from an older notebook….. typical me. It shows a few poems that I forgot I had written, and they’re not that cringy…sort of.


Breathe in

breathe out,

Absorb in,

nothing out.

Breathe in,

breathe out.

Hold it in,

nothing released.

Breathe in,

breathe out,

Memories sink,

tears out.

Breathe in,

breathe out,

One day,


Welcome & Selamta!

At a local small town restaurant in Lallibela, Ethiopia. Lovely vibes.

If you’re reading this then thank you for visiting firstly! I think it’s about time I started a blog since i’ve just started my new Youtube channel of the same name!

Anyone who is habesha (that’s anyone who is Ethiopian or Eritrean) might guess from my title that, yes, I am habesha too! My mum is from Eritrea and my dad from Ethiopia. Me, I’m a born-and-raised Londoner, but that doesn’t stop me from questioning my identities now and again in terms of how I fit in this society that I live in, as well as other things….like being….akward…. lol. It’s harrddd.

So that’s why I will be sharing my passions, my views as a brown 20something female with Afrikan roots.

I’d love to know more about you too, hopefully you can share your thoughts too on topics like society, Afrikan culture, addressing the big questions…oh and what cartoons were the illest when I was growing up back in the late eighties/nighties (go ninja turtles!) and also what star sign you are (go pisces!)

Ciao! Ahmesegenalow! (That’s thank you in Amharic)
